I have a MP3 player, FAT filesystem so I mount it as vfat, I've used it under Windows no problem but a few weeks ago I copied a bunch of songs to it from linux since I no longer have windows installed and a bunch of files refused to play. This morning I was in a mad rush and I copied a few CDs onto it and left but when I went to play it not one file worked. I plug it into the computer and the files are there but won't play.
I'm using autofs to automagically mount it when I plug it in but I'm just unplugging it at the end, autofs unmounts it but with a FAT filesystem do I need to umount it before I unplug it? I'll have a play around but anyone have any ideas why the files end up corrupt?
